On Saturday, February 23rd, SomaChurch will minister the love of Jesus to the City of Tyler. Look over these three available outreaches to SIGN-UP for the one that works best for you and your family.
Kings’ Storehouse needs a group of 50 people to help box, bag and distribute food to help the hungry and needy of East Texas. This is a great opportunity for families with younger children. Be prepared to get a little messy.
We will meet at The King’s Storehouse (422 E. Oakwood Street Tyler, TX 75702) at 9:30am.
This ministry opportunity is simple but very impactful! We gather on street corners, hold up ‘free prayer’ signs and wait for people to respond. It’s amazing to see how many people stop and take advantage of free prayer! Groups of people may also break off and go on prayer walks in the downtown area. Come prepared for God to use you to speak life over many who are discouraged and needing words of hope. This outreach is for Youth Ministry and Adults.
We will meet at the Family Dollar on the corner of Beckham Avenue and Front Street at 9:30am and disperse from there.
2:15pm – 4:15pm
Jesus Closet needs a group of 8-10 people who have a heart to engage the homeless of our community through acts of service and life-giving conversation.
Meet at Faith Community Church (17833 US-69, Tyler, TX 75703) at 2:15pm to load and prepare the goods for the homeless. We will then drive to the Beckham Street Church Under the Bridge to meet the homeless at 3pm where we will serve them a meal and help meet practical and spiritual needs. This outreach is only available for Youth Ministry and Adults who aren’t afraid to engage in deeper conversations. Come prepared to get a little dirty.
We value living out the love of Jesus Christ believing it will compel the spiritually lost to follow Him. (John 13:35; Matthew 14:16; Matthew 25:35; 1 Timothy 6:18; James 1:27, 2:15-16; Acts 2:45; 1 John 3:17)
Light… Salt… Witness… These are all words Jesus used to describe what the church should be to the world. At Soma, our mission field starts with our neighbor and extends out from there to the corners of the earth. Such a tall task can not be accomplished alone, by a single church. That is why we are proactive in partnering with other churches and organizations in the Tyler community to see that mandate fulfilled locally. Together with other partners we have adopted a local school, hold tutoring sessions, lead after school activities, hosted prayer walks, painted houses, given out school backpacks and been able to help many people who are in physical and spiritual need.
This vision is not limited to Tyler, but extends to the rest of the globe! Soma has partnered with great Missions organizations and Missionaries to see the Gospel advanced. When it comes to International Missons, Soma has a motto: GO or Give! Each year Soma gives 10% of it’s annual income to domestic and international missions. We also send out individual missionaries and short-term teams each year. These efforts have landed us in countries such as Israel, Ghana, Peru, Russia, Greece, Ethiopia, South Sudanand various other countries. It is our goal and privilege to be a part of God’s great commission of Matthew 28:19.
